Default Riccardo Giacconi dies

Riccardo Giacconi, 87, Explorer of the Universe Through X-Rays, Dies - The New York Times

Riccardo Giacconi, an astrophysicist who won the Nobel Prize for pioneering the study of the universe through the X-rays emitted by the most violent actors in the cosmos, including black holes, exploding stars and galumphing clouds of galaxies, died on Sunday in the La Jolla section of San Diego. He was 87.
A famous space- and astrophysicist.
Now if thou would'st
When all have given him o'er
From death to life
Thou might'st him yet recover
-- Michael Drayton 1562 - 1631

He wasn't a dedicated student very early on, then he went on to do all that. Inspirational.
